KLAS Announces 2014 Best in KLAS Winners

flying cadeuciiEpic  regains its top spot in the 2014 Best in KLAS awards, winning in the Overall Physician Practice Vendor and Overall Software Suite categories. Impact Advisors was named the Overall IT Services Firm.

Last year athenahealth beat out Epic by a narrow margin. This year athena still had an excellent showing, taking the top spots for Practice Management in both the 1-10 physician and 11-75 physician categories, as well as second place (after Epic) in the over 75 physician category.

Epic won Best in KLAS or category leader honors for Acute Care EMR, Ambulatory EMR (11-75 physicians and over 75 physicians), HIE, Lab, Patient Account and Patient Management, Patient Portals, Pharmacy, Radiology, and Surgery Management.

Other notable winners and runner-ups include:

  • Allscripts Sunrise in the Global (Non-US) Acute EMR category, followed by Cerner and InterSystems
  •  Allscripts Sunrise and Cerner Millennium took second and third place finishes in the Acute Care EMR category
  • Cerner PowerChart (followed by Amazing Charts and SRSsoft) won for Ambulatory EMR 1-10 Physicians and was fourth in the Ambulatory over 75 Physician category. Interestingly Cerner PowerChart didn’t make the top five in the 11-75 Physician segment
  • KLAS added several new segments this year including Population (won by Phytel) and Urgent Care (Practice Velocity), plus a new Global (non-US) report that includes multiple categories.

KLAS ratings are based on interviews with over 4,500 hospitals and overs 3,000 physician offices and clinics and compiled over a 12-month period. “Best in KLAS” recognizes vendor performance in market segments that have the broadest organizational impact, in addition to being named the Category Leader.

KLAS has its fair share of critics who claim the scores are not biased and too heavily-influenced by money paying vendors. However, providers and vendors alike pay attention to the rankings and the winning vendors love the bragging rights that come with recognition.

Congrats to all the winners.
